GM Canada offers the least sufficient alternative possible for the defunct Pontiac G8 [via Derek Kreindler/CarChat]. Sound familiar?

By building a car in the ways that really matter? I think not. But then my opinion was based on 2 weeksand 2000 miles in an Avis rental.
The first week was in August when I went fishing in Alaska.
The 2nd week was 2 weeks ago when I took a trip to LA.
1. The car that really delivers comes with a 5 or 6 speed transmission. not 4 with god awful ratios.
2. A car that seats 6 needs more than 2 cup holders. Seriously.
3. Rear seats that don't fold down? Luckily I was going fishing and was able to find a short rod in the shed.
Maybe the retail versions of the car are diff. After all, it was a rental fleet special and GM is known to cut out goodies in the name of cost.http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/enterprise-deletes-impala-standard-sidebags/
"We're sorry, the Corvette ZR1 is not available for test driving at a dealer near you."
Might we suggest a Cobalt coupe instead?
Being a big fan of RWD, and an owner of another Holden/Pontiac (a GTO), I lament GM's decision to stop selling the G8. Telling people a comparable car is an Impala is a cruel jest. That is, unless it is a pristine B-body Impala SS...
Funny, but GM Canada still have this one their website:
Seems kind of strange that they'd leave that up.
